The competition can’t really measure up when you’re comparing an Idaho family vacation, to well, just about anywhere else actually. This magnificent state should be famous for its access to some of the country’s most incredible attractions, soaring mountains, destination resorts, trout fishing, raging rivers, award-winning golf, terrific skiing, and the list literally does go on and on and on. Considering all of these unbelievable attributes, it’s amusing really that what immediately comes to the forefront of most people’s minds about Idaho is that it’s home to the great potato. One however can’t minimize the importance this vegetable has been to putting Idaho on the map, and not just in the United States, but in the psyche of people throughout the entire world.
Ironically, it turns out that some of the same logic on why Idaho can deliver on its promise to produce the tastiest spuds are some of the same reasons the conditions are ripe for setting up the ideal Idaho family vacation; incredibly clean air, an abundance of bright, sunny warm days, and cool nights. Sounds to me like the optimum environment for playing outdoors, in any season. Destination travelers choose Teton Springs Lodge & Spa, located in the heart of Victor for an ideal Idaho vacation. Perched in the center of the Teton Springs Resort, this cozy, casual, yet elegant hotel has mass appeal, just like the Idaho potato!
